Fulton, NY – One of the area’s most anticipated and largest golf tournaments, the United Way of Greater Oswego County’s Annual Golf Classic is looking to be bigger and better than ever this year.

Now in its 19th year, the United Way Golf Classic provides community members with an opportunity to enjoy a fun day of golf while supporting their local United Way.
According to United Way Resource Development Director, Lois Luber, this year’s event will build upon the excitement generated from the most recent golf classics.
“The move to the Oswego County Club has breathed a new life into the event. The feedback we have received since we’ve hosted the event at the Oswego Country Club has overwhelmingly positive,” said Luber.
